The latest issue of my Bartography Express newsletter — focusing on the Texas Library Association conference, recent discussions of diversity in children’s literature, and Elizabeth Bluemle and G. Brian Karas’ new picture book, Tap Tap Boom Boom — went out to subscribers a few days ago.

Here’s an image of the entire newsletter. For the next few weeks, you can click the image to get a fully linked version.

And if you’ll give me a shout in the comments section of this post, you can still get in the running for the giveaway of Elizabeth’s lively, rhyming urban thunderstorm story, of which The Horn Book says, “The emphasis here is not on a child’s fear of storms but on the excitement of the experience.”
